**Sunday Mirror Book of the Month**
"It is a lovely book. Full of joyous memories." --The Unofficial Liverpool Football Club Museum
"This is a great LFC book." --LFC History since 1892
"A cracking honey pot of red nostalgia... a fantastic Liverpool FC book to have in your collection." --Bill Shankly The Greatest Football Man
"Brilliant... a fabulous football nostalgia book. From cards and stickers to scarves and rosettes... and badges and beermats and pennants and... you get the gist. Enough LFC nostalgia to fill a book. Got, Not Got: Liverpool is a 144-page compendium featuring Lee's memorabilia - an essential title for any Red." --Liverpool FC magazine
There is a treasure to be found on every page here. Derek and Gary have done a quite wonderful job with this project. If you want to wallow in a most pleasurable trip down Memory Lane, this is the book to buy for yourself or to give to others. Take a bow, Mr Hammond. Take a bow, Mr Silke. This book comfortably equals or betters any of the excellent publications already produced under your joint-names. From a Liverpool point of view, it is an absolute gem." --LFChistory.net
"A veritable cornuKopia of long-forgotten treasures. The Got, Not Got books do exactly what the great Liverpool teams of of the past always did best play it simple, but to devastating effect." --Sunday Mirror
"Jump on board from page one for a fantastic voyage through Anfield nostalgia and memorabilia, captured in both colour and evocative black and white illustrations. The book is a temple to a world of football that regrettably has slipped into history, which serves to make it even more fascinating and compelling." --Author and broadcaster John Keith
"There's a whole series of books called Got, Not Got: brilliant books looking back at old football memorabilia." --James Brown, talkSPORT
"The English publisher Pitch Publishing provides a series of books with a clear penchant for soccer romance. It covers the period from 1960 to 1990, when the commercial monstrosity of the Champions League so it was not yet invented. The books are treasure chests of memories and memorabilia, such as badges, football towns, programs, shirts, scarves, long-playing plates and old elftal and stadium photos." --Panenka magazine, Holland
"The authors have tapped into a rich vein of nostalgia by identifying the kind of memorabilia we will all have had at one time or another. I found myself transported back to my earlier days of watching football, swapping cards in the school playground and collecting autographs at the ground. Lovely books and they really have hit on a good formula. If they've done one for your club it's well worth the outlay to buy it - you might well find your own collection is not as complete as you once imagined it to be." --Programme Monthly & Football Collectable

Maybe you have to be over a certain age to appreciate all the golden memories that this wondrous little book contains. Visions of childhood days will come flooding back as you turn the pages and discover yet another piece of magic that was so prevalent in one’s youth. Only one football club is covered here of course but many of the items portrayed were universal in that they were collected by young supporters of all clubs, not just this one. Like so many of my contemporaries I was an avid reader of Charles Buchan’s Football Monthly, the publication fronted by the former Sunderland and Arsenal forward bringing some “colour to brighten the grey post-war landscape covered by the monochrome grown-up media”. When a four-weekly fix wasn’t sufficient an equal buzz could be obtained from the weekly Shoot and Goal magazines.
There is a treasure to be found on every page here. From a general point of view I went into a long-forgotten cupboard to discover my sets of Esso’s England 1970 World Cup Coin Collection and its later F.A. Cup Centenary Year (1972) Winners’ Coin Collection, both still intact and even with a few ‘spares’.Read more ›
